    Hate to keep picking on Biden and Harris.......Nah, they deserve it and it's fun to watch some of you attempting to make excuses for them.
    According to the VP:
    "The United States shares a very important relationship, which is an alliance with the Republic of North Korea,"

    However latter she did say:
    "I cannot state enough that the commitment of the United States to the defense of the Republic of Korea is iron-clad, and that we will do everything in our power to ensure that it has meaning in every way that the words suggest,"

    It is really unnerving as we see the two most powerful people in the US speaking like they do and leading.

    As I mentioned in another thread on this topic, most Americans are generally ignorant about geography and world affairs, so it isn't really that surprising that this ignorance is also reflected in our elected officials.

    Is this just an ongoing competition in America to see who can be the most obsessed about faux pas committed by US leaders?

    Like outside of comedy/parody shows that intentionally look for that to mock, I don’t see the value in looking for such to criticise.

    I dunno, maybe I’m just a bit over the “circus” at this point.

    It's been one of America's favorite pastimes for as long as I can remember.

    It looks like Kissinger at the top of the stairs, grabbing both rails the moment he sees President Ford slip and fall.

    A few other examples, such as the time President Bush puked on the Japanese prime minister:

    And this one had Sam Donaldson in stitches:

    Hah!
    Amusing.
    Even Dubya Bush couldn't top that word butchery.
    She really is beginning to fit in with our new lower
    standards for presidential eloquence.

    BTW, lest the lefties get trigged by this post, I find
    it covfefe funny....not significant.

    The USA deserves someone who never mispeaks or makes factual errors during press conferences. I heard the last guy was really competent. All the fact at his command. :p

    Seriously, one the few good things Trump did was get out of the way with regards to N Korea. There seemed to have been a lot of progress towards peace and normal-ish relations.

    Harris misspoke and said North instead of South....wow...?

    Not quite as good as when Trump talked about troops in the Revolutionary War "taking over the airports," or modified a weather map with a sharpie, or referred to an Asian woman as "Coco Chow" but I guess it's a slow news day.

    Trump got "played" as the NK leader sent at least one letter praising Trump.
